Bali lost one of its finest "adopted Sons" on Monday, May 8, 2006, with the death of Father Norbert Shadeg SVD at the age of 86.

Born into a family of 14 children in Union Hill, Minnesota on December 10, 1921, Norbert Antonius Shadeq followed an early calling and entered the Divine Word Noviate in Techny, Illionois at the age of 21. From among his group of siblings, Father Shadeg had two brothers who became priests and five sisters who became nuns. One brother, Father Werner Shadeq, who preceded him in death only one month before, spent 55 years in New Guinea teaching at seminaries and high schools.

Father Norbert Shadeq came to Indonesia shortly after his ordination working in Makassar and Flores before accepting an assignment in Bali in July of 1950.

In Bali Father Norbert Shadeq served as a pastor at a number of churches in Bali while pursuing a keen interest in education and cultural studies. While serving as an English teacher in Singaraja, Father Shadeq embarked on a life-long study of the Balinese language mastering the intricacies of both the prosaic and refined forms needed for fluent communication. As the result of his study of Balinese the Priest published two books: "A Basic Balinese Vocabulary" and "Bali Pocket Dictionary."

In 2005 Father received the K. Nadha Nugraha Award for his long service to the Balinese community and his work to promote the Balinese language.

Following a funeral mass on May 10th, Father Shadeq was laid to rest in a cemetery of the Diocese of Denpasar located in Palasari.
